Previous GeneCards Identifiers for MGAT3 Gene
There are believed to be over 100 different glycosyltransferases involved in the synthesis of protein-bound and lipid-bound oligosaccharides. The enzyme encoded by this gene transfers a GlcNAc residue to the beta-linked mannose of the trimannosyl core of N-linked oligosaccharides and produces a bisecting GlcNAc. Multiple alternatively spliced variants, encoding the same protein, have been identified. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
GeneCards Summary for MGAT3 Gene
MGAT3 (Mannosyl (Beta-1,4-)-Glycoprotein Beta-1,4-N-Acetylglucosaminyltransferase) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Metabolism and N-Glycan biosynthesis. GO annotations related to this gene include beta-1,4-mannosylglycoprotein 4-beta-N-acetylglucosaminyltransferase activity.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for MGAT3 Gene
It is involved in the regulation of the biosynthesis and biological function of glycoprotein oligosaccharides. Catalyzes the addition of N-acetylglucosamine in beta 1-4 linkage to the beta-linked mannose of the trimannosyl core of N-linked sugar chains. It is one of the most important enzymes involved in the regulation of the biosynthesis of glycoprotein oligosaccharides.
